How You Know Someone Was Really Loved or Respected

 Lacrosse, Va. (1933)

03/31/1931: Robbers shot to death three men and wounded a fourth on a farm, who subsequently died.  They were apparently well-like, an estimated 10,000 people attended their funeral.

Category: family non-resident

Suicide: no

Cause: robbery

Weapon: firearm[1]

I doubt 10,000 people will make it to my funeral.  (Don't buy airline tickets yet.)
